    Hello, my name is Blythe and I live in Missouri. My family and I moved to a home on 11 acres from the city a few months ago. Right after we moved in we got our first chicks and over this past weekend bought 10 more. We also have a couple Heritage Bronze Turkeys and a small flock of Guinea Fowl. Attached is a pic of the beautiful coop my husband and father just built for me. Anyway, I am very glad I found this site! I look forward to learning from all the other members.

    Hi, Blythe, and welcome to BYC! Congratulations on your recent venture into the wonderful world of poultry keeping. That is an adorable little coop - which of the birds are you planning to house in this one?

    We are keeping the chickens in this coop. Then we found a nice wood playhouse free off Craigslist that we are making into the coop for the turkeys and Guinea. The Guinea follow around my oldest turkey. He is their leader I guess!

    Greetings from Kansas, Blythe, and :welcome! Great to have in our community! I agree - that is a beautiful coop. Having a hard time judging its size...how many chicks total do you have...just want to make sure they're not too crowded. Can lead to stress and aggression. Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!

    We have 4 Silkies that I bought in August when we first moved. Then last weekend we got 10 that are Silkies, Cochins, Buff Orpingtons and maybe a Wyandotte or two. Some of them are definitely mixed breed and some are not. It's hard to tell right now because they are under a month old.

    It's actually pretty large. It should fit 9 to 10 comfortably. It is bigger than it looks in the picture. Right now all my birds are still young and fairly small so we have more than that in there, but I found a very nice wooden playhouse free on craigslist that we are converting into a second coop.
